I currently work for bb7, an award-winning product development consultancy located in Madison, WI. In the past 6 years, I’ve used the vast range of projects and clients to dramatically improve my creative skills, brand strategies, and technical knowledge. In terms of CAD modeling, I have taken many advanced surfacing classes and have pushed my abilities to the point where I am now the Industrial Design Lead for all complex CAD projects. I am also responsible for working with clients to establish a Visual Brand Language (VBL). This involves a lot of research working with marketing, CEO’s, and sales to distill the core values of a company into visual aspects of my designs. This translates to an extremely effective, repeatable process that can be applied a wide variety of products. Basically, I don’t redesign individual projects, I am responsible for redesigning entire product lines. Prior to bb7, I have worked with Harley Davidson, Volvo, Briggs & Stratton, and Milwaukee Tool. Please don't hesitate to contact me with your next project, I'd love to hear from you!
